Academic Programs General Requirements

The Bachelor of Science in Food Science:

To join the program

In the first two years, students will complete most of the UCOREs and initiate studies of the sciences basic to food science. Following admission to WSU, a student may be admitted to Food Science Options in the College of Agricultural, Human, and Natural Resource Sciences upon making their intention known to the School of Food Science. This will typically happen during orientation events. Junior and senior years will emphasize food processing, food microbiology, and food chemistry–all related to cereal, dairy, fruit, vegetable, meat, product development, and processing.  Also, be aware that during the junior and senior years there will be some traveling to the University of Idaho campus to take some Food Science classes through the ‘WSU-UI Cooperative Non-degree’ Program.
